Which large macaws make the best pets, the apple seed myth and teaching worldliness…

Complete Psittacine. By EB Cravens

I often have topics about which there is not really enough data to merit a full magazine piece, so I keep them filed away until I can gather several together for a “random thoughts” article.  Here are a few of the latest:

My favourite large macaws: In my opinion the most important factor in a large macaw’s personality development is the bird's upbringing - that is, how much life experience and training it was given during the formative period of say, the first 24-30 weeks.  Macaws of nervous temperament can be created before and during the fledgling phase by pushing them too quickly, to perch and develop, be social, wean, or accept strangers, when in fact they have not yet grown secure in their adolescence due to so many continuous changes going on around them.
